Please see basketball update below...

This year Balmacewen Basketball has reached new heights, players have been putting in significant amounts of effort on and off the court, and very clearly reaping the benefits. It has been a pleasure to see all 16 teams take part in the competition this year. With a multitude of teams, means a multitude of coaches. Therefore, a special thanks to our volunteers, coaches, referees, people managing the bench for your mahi. Basketball has been successful in connecting a broad range of students, whilst promoting our tamariki to get active and take part in sport.

Currently the boys year 7A and boys year 8A teams are sitting at top of the table, both teams remaining undefeated in the Otago competition. Our Balmac Pelicans are sitting in 3rd spot in the year 7 Boys C grade competition. Balmac Fever who are our year 7 girls team are sitting in 3rd spot. Balmac Nuggets are currently 2nd and Balmac Celtics are currently 3rd in the Year 8 Boys C Grade. The Balmac Sparks who are our Year 8 A Girls team are currently sitting 3rd.

Good luck to all of our teams for the remainder of the Basketball season.
